On Monday, we learn what Acer's got up its sleeve for the future. Today, we're trying to decide where it pulled this idea from.

What you're looking at is the DX650, which has a proper 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen on one side. On the back (or the front, we guess), is a monochrome OLED display and a full numeric keypad and camera. Why, we ask. Why?

There's also GPS, microSD and mini-USB. And a monochrome OLED display and full numeric keypad on the back. It's doubtful this is what Acer intends to show off at Mobile World Congress next week. Probably. Right?

More recognizable is the Acer X960, seen here at right, which appears to be another step in the newly acquired Glofiish line. It's got a 2.8-inch 640x480 touchscreen, an 533MHz Samsung processor, a 3.2-megapixel camera HSDPA, WiFi, GPS, and microSD.

More photos of what happens with 2008 and 1998 collide are over at SlashGear, as are more on the X960.
